Carpets are one of the most difficult things to clean. They have a lot of surface area and there are many different types that require different methods for cleaning. Cleaning carpets can be challenging, but it's not impossible! This blog post will give you five simple steps on how to clean your carpet with ease.
Regular vacuuming is essential to keep your carpet free of dirt and dust. Cleaning carpets with a vacuum cleaner is much easier than cleaning by hand, but it's important not to over do the vacuum. Over-vacuuming can cause damage to loops in the carpet which will leave them vulnerable for rips and tears. Vacuum at least once every week or two if you have pets living there, more often if children live there too. And don't forget about stairs! Cleaning these areas regularly ensures that your whole house stays clean and healthy all year long
Use baking soda to clean your carpets. Mix one part baking soda (about two cups) with three parts water for a thick consistency like pancake batter, and use this mixture to scrub the carpet where you notice stains or odor issues.
Combine baking soda with water in a bucket and scrub your carpets with it. Simply mix one part baking soda (about two cups) into three parts water. The mixture should be about the thickness of pancake batter so add additional ingredients if necessary or desired. Spread the solution over the carpet then let dry overnight before vacuuming up excess spillage from its surface area .
Clean up spills as soon as they happen. Spills are inevitable when you're talking about food odors, kids' drinks, adult beverages etc .Spills will soak into carpeting if left too long and can create stains or odors that are difficult to remove. Clean up any spillages by using a mixture of mild dish soap and water in an appropriately sized bucket then scrub the area with your solution using a sponge, brush, or cloth before blotting dry with paper towels.
If you have pets, use an enzymatic cleaner monthly for stains and odors. Pets often contribute to unsightly stains on carpets so it's important to keep them clean at all times! An enzymatic cleaner is specially formulated for effectively removing pet urine from rugs without requiring heavy physical labor (such as shampooing). You can look for a cleaner that specifically says "pet safe" or has the words "enzymatic cleaner" somewhere in its description.
Dry wet spots immediately to avoid mold growth or bad smells. Cleaning carpets is all about prevention; you're less likely to have a problem if you take care of spills as soon as they happen rather than letting them sit for hours, days, weeks etc . If your pet has an accident and leaves a spot on the carpet that's still damp, act quickly by blotting up excess liquid with paper towels then step on it firmly - this should absorb some of the moisture so the area doesn't stay wet long enough to start growing mildew or emitting unpleasant odors.
Cleaning your carpets can be easy if you follow these five steps. Cleaning them with baking soda is a cheap and natural way to clean stains and remove odors, but it's important not to over-use the vacuum cleaner or dry wet spots too quickly!
